Wednesday, Aug 21, 6pm EDT:  Mitchell's guest this evening is Robert Thurman, Professor of Indo-Tibetan Studies at Columbia University, to discuss Tibet, the role of HH Dalai Lama, and how our society could benefit from the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhist thought in today's world.
Noted in a NY Times Magazine profile as “The Dalai Lama’s man in America,” and having been named by Time Magazine one of the “25 Most Influential Americans,”
 All this along with his 45-year friendship with the Dalai Lama makes him the perfect voice for Tibet and its quest for freedom.

Having studied with His Holiness the Dalai Lama personally, Thurman was the first American monk of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. He is credited with being at the forefront of making Tibetan spirituality, philosophy, and art accessible and understandable in the West. He has a B.A., A.M. and Ph.D. degrees from Harvard and has studied in Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in India and the United States.

He is a popular professor in the Religion Department of Columbia University where he holds the Jey Tsong Khapa Chair in Indo-Tibetan Studies.

Tune in to hear Robert speak with Mitchell about the current status of Tibet, the Tibetan Diaspora and where we appear to be as a human species relative to ideas of Tibetan prophecy and potential.
